About The owner

Many years ago I was driving through the rolling hills of Chianti, dotted with cypress trees and olive groves swaying in the breeze, with lovely hilltop villages offering their scent of jasmine and rosemary in the brilliant sunshine.

“A place to be…” I thought. “A place to nourish my spirit and enjoy that beautiful sound of silence.” So I moved here permanently and opened an atelier in the old center of Panzano, and started decorating ceramics and designing wrought-iron furniture.

I bought a barn within walking distance of Panzano and turned it into a comfortable, relaxing home in this little corner of paradise. It’s called Villa Santa Lucia. Its been recognized in interior design magazines for its lovely restoration and remains a dream come true for me.

It’s also a dream I’m happy to share with you.

Villa Santa Lucia is available for you to rent the whole year around. It’s a place where your dreams of living in Italy can come true as well.

We look forward to welcoming you!


Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Santa Lucia was a barn that was lovingly and painstakingly restored and made into a picturesque Tuscan home by the owner and designer, Janine. It is truly a quintessential Tuscan experience and every place you looked there were creations by Janine - ways she put her creative signature on the house and it works so well.

I took my children ages 13 and 11, as well as my parents and my husband and it fit all of us quite comfortably. Each room was beautifully and rustically decorated and the garden, though being worked on during our stay, was stunning. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and eating outside, with the most stunning views of the golden valley you could ask for...the walks through surrounding vineyards were amazing. Janine and her family were so dear and so helpful - one could not ask for better hosts. The home is close to Panzano, which is a lovely village with a couple wonderful family run restaurants - the best, at the top of the hill just by the steps to the church. It was perfectly located for all the villages we wanted to see - for both Siena and the surrounding hills and Firenze and everything in between. We had a lovely drive to San Giminagno and also Montepulciano and many hilltop villages in the region. We cannot say enough about how lovely and enjoyable our stay was. This house is highly recommended.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Not a lot to say other than we have stayed at a lot places around the world and this was our favorite place ever. The view is incredible and loved the town of Panzano. The property is beautiful and the little pool was great to jump in after a hot day walking around Tuscany. The house is as fantastic as the rest of the property. If you imagine your ideal Tuscan farmhouse, this exceeds it. Stay here, we would not stay anywhere else.

One of the many serene mornings looking out I turned to my wife and said maybe we are in heaven. al

  • 5 of 5

This place was pure magic and everything (and more) than my wife and I expected. It was a very charming, well-decorated country home with a spectacular view. Our host was very welcoming and provided a wealth of information and what to do, where to go, where to eat and when. Sienna and Florence are within an easy drive as are the many many country towns of Tuscany. Panzano was an easy walk away and was the perfect little town as it has a small commercial side but has not lost its small-town charm and was not chock-a-block with annoying tourists. I didn't feel like leaving. In fact I fell like going back right away - and staying.

The best of locations and we loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were three couples. Upon arriving we were awestruck with the beautiful and idealistic views of the Tuscan landscape that served as a backdrop to the villa’s artistically staged grounds and swimming pool setting. Once inside you step back in time with an eclectic collection of period furniture and curiosities that will keep you discovering new items throughout your visit. The main sitting area is a great hall where we lit fires and spent many delightful nights. More importantly, the beds are extremely comfortable and the internet works! Panzano is a quaint town where we ate at both of Dario’s famous beef restaurants (and others) and more surprisingly met local winemakers that made this experience even more memorable. The location to other points of interest is another reason for choosing this Villa. Do a Google search and you could be here for much longer than you anticipated for an even more memorable stay!

But I must add there are drawbacks: the lack of a closet in one bedroom, the curtain that separates the bathroom from the bed in the second bedroom and the showers in all three bedrooms are a “cottage” experience that must be stated. But regardless, I highly recommend this villa!

Lovely time in a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our short, off-season stay at Santa Lucia! The house was well kept and beautiful with stunning views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. There is plenty to do in the area, and you are a short drive from pretty much anywhere in Tuscany (San Gimignano etc). The nearest town, Panzano, which is walking distance is fantastic as well with an incredible butcher and great shops.

The house is well appointed and we enjoyed our time cooking, playing cards by the roaring fireplace, and drinking wine.

Janine is a wonderful hostess and we look forward to returning!

Stunning home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The owner thought of just about every detail and this was the highlight of our amazing trip! The area is fantastic for both sightseeing and just relaxing. Be sure to enjoy the property and all of the stunning views from the numerous vantage points. We couldn't have asked for a better or more charming home. I hope to return soon to paradise.

wonderful tuscan rustic villa

  • 5 of 5

we had a beautiful week here, Janine the owner couldnt have been more helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed cooking and sipping tuscan wine over dinner outside looking over the beautiful garden and surrounding vineyards. Would highly recommend this place. The inside is like a treasure trove - would be lovely to come back in wintertime to get cosy and actually enjoy the inside a bit more ..
